An Advent Prayer

Holy One,
You who creep in among us on a starlit night,
An unlikely blessing in an unlikely place,
Hear our prayer. 

We offer you our sorrows, and our joys.
We offer you our questions and our doubts.
We offer you the best and worst of ourselves.
We trust that you know what to do with it –
Celebrate, transform, redeem, forgive.

Teach us to be vulnerable, as you were.
Teach us to accept love, as you did.
Teach us to make a home for you.

Inspire us to be for you,
a light that shines in the darkness,
Let our words, and our actions, and
our hearts testify to your light.
